NHTSA Cues of a Drunk Driver
Ever wonder what the cops are looking for when they stop a person for suspected drunk driving? There are 24 cues that NHTSA teaches the police to look for; one that is missing is significant:
The Visual Detection of DWI Motorists NHTSA
24 Driving Cues DWI DETECTION GUIDE
Problems Maintaining Proper Lane Position:
Weaving across lane lines
Straddling a lane line
Turning with a wide radius
Almost striking a vehicle or other object
Speed and Braking Problems:
Stopping problems (too far, too short, or too jerky)
Accelerating or decelerating for no apparent reason
Slow speed (10+ mph under limit)
Driving in opposing lanes or wrong way on one-way
Slow response to traffic signals
Slow or failure to respond to officer's signals
Stopping in lane for no apparent reason
Driving without headlights at night
Failure to signal or signal inconsistent with action
Following too closely
Improper or unsafe lane change
Illegal or improper turn (too fast, jerky, sharp, etc.)
Driving on other than the designated roadway
Stopping inappropriately in response to officer
Inappropriate or unusual behavior (throwing, arguing, etc.)
Appearing to be impaired
One driving action that is not an established cue of a drunk driver is speeding! Yet many of the people ultimately arrested for drunk driving are stopped for speeding, but speeding is inconsistent with drunk driving!
